A few day later, I couldn't shake the thought of John and me out of my head. I told Alina about it and all she said was " if your sure about this, just go for it. If it works out than good for you. If not then it just wasn't meant to be". I'm glad that I have a friend like her around to help me out.
"I can even ask him for you if you want. " she said.
" you would do that for me?" I asked, sorta surprised.
"Sure, what are friends for. " she said with a smile.
"Okay, but I'll tell you if you should do it. I'm not so sure about this. " I said. I really wasn't sure if this would work out but I gave it alot of thought.
The next Monday, on the bus, I told Alina she could ask him outside but she had to make sure that I wasn't around. It would be so embarrassing if I were there. Did I mention that I'm super shy? Well around guys anyway.
I talked to John during art and he invited me to his birthday party in January! Yes, I was aware that his birthday is in 3 full mounths but still!
The day flew by afterwards and it was finally time to go outside. I told Ruhama she could help Alina ask John "the question". They asked him a bunch of questions related to the topic but not the actuall question itself. They even asked him if he liked me but he said no. They told me what happened but I told them they should still ask him. Then John went over to me and asked if I knew what they were talking about or why they were asking him all these questions. I didn't want to lie but I said no. Ugh why do I have to be so shy?! Come on val. Just ask him.
Alina interrupted my thoughts. "She told me and Ruhama to ask you if you wanted to go out with her!" She exclaimed.
I blushed and looked down.
"Is that true?" John asked.
Every part of me wanted to lie and say no but I just spit it out.
"Yes" I barely managed to squeak out.
"I'll tell you my answer sometime this week." He said before turning his back and leaving.
Was that it? Was he just gonna leave me with the question hanging? Well I guess I'll just have to be patient.
